Grand Opening Launch Party of Timothy Oulton Hong Kong
– 19 Oct. 2012 –
Providing a true Timothy Oulton experience, the 500sqft gallery is situated on Gough Street in the heart of Central. Combining fashionable, contemporary stores, with local restaurants, this is an eclectic neighborhood which gathers an interesting mix of people coming to be inspired by what they experience. The trendy location reflects the very essence of the Timothy Oulton brand: the combination of authenticity, tradition and daring design with the aim of creating unique, heritage rich pieces which are reconceived through a thoroughly modern perspective making them relevant for today.
Timothy Oulton says about the expansion in Hong Kong ; “We’ve opened stores all over the world in the last six months, but this one is especially close to our hearts. Hong Kong is one of the home markets of Timothy Oulton and this is a much more intimate space, which is almost a new thing for us – an inspiration store with a sample of the most iconic pieces. Our Gough Streetstore in SoHo is a concentrated, distilled version of all the things we do best. It’s got a great energy to it and we know people will feel that as soon as they walk inside.“
The new daringly authentic leather bags collection is displayed on a striking wall of real sized drums inside the gallery. Known for their supreme quality leather which is cut, tanned, distressed, stitched and assembled by hand, the Timothy Oulton bags combine tradition with pioneering design
Made to be highly versatile, the bags were inspired by the classic portmanteau’s of the 1800’s but, like all Timothy Oulton designs, have been adapted to be relevant for today. Each one can be used on multiple occasions while the exterior has been designed to suit both formal and casual styles.
